What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a specialized tooth restoration, composed of two parts, a “post” and a “crown”. The post is inserted directly into the gum tissue, in order to serve as an artificial “root”. After this post has healed, an abutment is placed on it, and a crown, or artificial tooth, is attached to the abutment.
This crown is crafted from advanced porcelain or ceramic materials, and is designed to look and feel just like your original tooth.
By using this two-part implantation process, dental implants offer a superior method of tooth restoration. They last a very long time, and look and feel completely natural.
